RSS Reads

Congratulations to RSS students Samanta Fleming and Sara Lapointe on obtaining a Columbia Basin Trust Youth Grant for their proposal 'RSS Reads'. The project's goals are to promote the importance of literacy to local youth and appreciation of the value of reading. The grant will create a common space for students to study and read comfortably in the RSS Library. In addition, guest authors and poets will be invited to promote a love of literacy. We will also be organizing a "Get Caught Reading" contests in the near future. Look for changes to start happening soon.
